OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT examines the quintessentially Trumpian details of the presidency and his most important relationships, and no one is safe - from his close family and confidants to key political figures from both parties and members of the media.

Matt Lappin will serve as consulting producer. To learn more about OUR CARTOON PRESIDENT, follow @CartoonPres on Twitter and Facebook and join the conversation using #CartoonPresident.
